What To Wear To An Autumn Wedding

What To Wear To An Autumn Wedding

Does it get any better than an Autumn wedding? The leaves are turning, and there’s magic in the air. You know what else is in the air? Unpredictable Autumn weather! It may be hot, but it may be cool, who knows? Let’s get you sorted with Autumn wedding outfit options for the big day. You definitely don’t want to outshine the bride on her big day (on purpose that is…) and you want an outfit that suits the occasion. Something whimsical perhaps? Something bold? Either way, it needs to be fabulous. And it will be because I’ve got you covered with the ultimate girl’s guide to what to wear to a wedding in Autumn.

Dress Options

The best thing about dressing for Autumn is the range of outfits you have to choose from. From maxi’s to midi’s and everything in between; so many choices. But we’re talking Autumn wedding attire here, so let’s narrow it down a little.

You need something stylish, seasonally appropriate and fitting for the occasion.
Let's start with collared dresses.
The beauty of a collared dress is that the collar gives it a refined look, perfect for a wedding outfit.
Take the Abbey Linen Shirt Dress in Beverly Hills for instance. Its v-neckline creates a flattering frame for the collarbone and décolletage, adding a touch of sophistication to the relaxed silhouette. The beautiful soft linen will hug your hips in the most delicious of ways, and keep you cool if the weather is warm. This is a great choice for an Autumn wedding guest outfit as you can dress it up with accessories, or if the wedding vibe is more relaxed, leave it minimalistic and let the outfit do the talking.
Midi’s are another option for pulling off versatile Autumn wedding guest looks. We love the Darcey Plisse Dress in Bronze for its elegance and sophistication.
With its classic button-up design, long sleeves and collared neckline, you’ll turn heads in this stunning bronze midi. This one’s perfect for Autumn wedding guest dress ideas where the overall mood is elegant chic.
If you know the wedding will be relaxed and casual, look at Autumn wedding guest outfit ideas that are colourful and fun. We’re thinking something like the Farrah Linen Short Sleeve Dress in Green. It lets you pull off a luxurious vibe with all the comfort you need to celebrate and dance the night away. How sweet are those sleeves! This is the perfect wedding midi for women who love a splash of colour but want to keep it refined for the occasion. Get your hair styled while leaving space for your earrings and you’ll look stunning in this linen beauty.
If colour isn’t your thing, you can opt for darker tones that’ll look good as an Autumn wedding guest outfit. The Minden Linen Long Sleeve Shirred Dress in Navy will look amazing regardless of your body shape with its shirred bodice, a tiered skirt and a cute button opening at the back neckline.
This maxi dress is perfect when you’re not sure what to wear to a wedding in Autumn because it ticks all the wedding outfit boxes: it’s delicately feminine, which is fitting for the occasion (check); it can be both casual or elegant, depending on how you accessorise it (check); and it gives off goddess vibes regardless of your body shape (check!). Like I said, it ticks all the boxes!

Layering And Accessories

You’ve received your invitation, and after the initial excitement of going to the wedding, you’re struck with dread…what to wear to an Autumn wedding?
It’s months away, and you know the weather can be super hot, mild and chill or brisk and cool. How do you even plan for that?
One word—layers.
Layering is a girl’s best friend when it comes to outfit ideas for an Autumn wedding. The weather can be unpredictable this time of year; that’s where layers are a lifesaver. A jacket or long drape cardigan is easy to remove if it gets hot, or when the formalities are out of the way and it's time to dance and celebrate.
If you want the ultimate guide to layering in Autumn, here are some fab tips I’ve shared with friends already.
Accessories are the perfect way to add style, colour and fun to most Autumn wedding guest looks. A statement necklace or elegant earrings can add a touch of glamour. A clutch or a small handbag in a coordinating colour can complete your outfit. Look for bags with classic designs to maintain an elegant look that will compliment your outfit. Consider footwear as well. Comfort is key, especially at weddings where you might be on your feet for long periods.
Ankle boots or low-heeled shoes can offer comfort without sacrificing style. Of course, you can always go the opposite and wear a tall stiletto—just make sure it's not a garden or beach wedding, as you don't want to be struggling with sinking heels in the grass or sand. Heels with a wider base or wedges may work better if the venue is outdoors.

Chic Choices For Autumn I Do's: Your Style Wrap-Up

Alright, let's wrap this up! Picking out what to wear to an autumn wedding is like picking the perfect apple from an orchard—so many good choices, right? Whether you're falling for a chic collared dress or getting a little daring with a bright and fun linen number, the trick is to find something that feels just like you. It's all about striking that sweet spot between fitting in with the wedding's vibe and letting your style shine.
Autumn wedding guest outfit ideas are all about having fun with your style while keeping it real with the season. Go out there, show off your fabulous self, and just soak up the day. It's a celebration of love, so love yourself in a wedding outfit that reflects your personality, flatters your figure, and lets you shine. Remember, you're not just attending a wedding; you're crafting moments that will last a lifetime, all while looking absolutely stunning!
